    Hi All, I have everything but the engine for a 2015 Striple R and have come across the opportunity to purchase an engine from a 2013 Striple R. From what I can find online the engines should be able to be interchangeable from '13-16, but calling Triumph and asking didn't give me a definitive...
  2. Air Cooled Twins Talk
    I recently suffered a major breakdown while on the motorway at about 70mph. The bike misfired and started burning a lot of oil, then died and on stopping on the hard shoulder poured a load of oil out through the air box. The bike is currently with my local repair shop being diagnosed, but...
  3. Triumph Trident Forum
    Well, went on a nice long ride today and unfortunately the bike slipped out on some gravel. Surprisingly took minimal damage and only has some scratches on the left side of the engine. Not as bad as the picture makes it seem as there’s still some dirt on it. Really wish I had the engine covers...

    Quick question, I had the left clutch cover off to replace the gear shift rod. Have everything put back together along with new tires. I assumed it would be similar to an “oil change” amount of oil needed w/out the filter since I kept the same oil filter. I put roughly 3.5 quarts in. Buddy...
  5. Speed Triple Forum
    Hi all! Sadly, I've had a major problem as I was doing my break-in. I did the first 300 miles according to the break-in sticker- never going above 5k rpm. But after speaking with my local Triumph tech, I did 300-450 miles fairly hard; I was going all through the rev's and pushing quite a bit...

    Is the trident engine just buzzier than I’m used to? This is my first triumph triple engine and it seems like the engine noise is louder than the exhaust. Even noisier after sitting for a bit and first cold start.

    Can a Thruxton or Bonneville motor that is carbureted be replaced with a Thruxton or Bonneville motor that fuel injected?
  8. Air Cooled Twins Technical Talk
    Guys, my 2016 triumph scrambler engine failed on me at 50k due to a bad oil pump gear. Now I’m looking at doing an engine swap. I know that the Bonnie/ thruxton engines will not work without some wire harness and coil work but since the speed master is a 270 will it work? I’ve done a little...

    Hi all! Has anyone come across an engine stand for 865 Bonnie's? Looking to do a complete rebuild and was trying to avoid building one from scratch! Thanks in advance! Ashley
  10. Street Triple Forum
    I started wearing earplugs while riding and as soon as I didn't wear them, I began to notice more sounds coming from the bike in general than before wearing them. If it makes sense. All sounds good but I'm unsure whether this clicking sound is normal or not. Now the bike has 22.500km on it, the...

  12. Maintenance & Workshop Talk
    Hi everyone, hope you’re all doing ok in this crazy time. I’m looking for advice on taking care of my Bonneville T120 engine casing. It has some white discoloration and I’m wondering what I can do to treat it. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
  13. The Welcome Center
    Hi all, Glad to be with you all, yet it is a sad event that brings me here. Until last week I was a very happy middle-aged Street Triple RS owner, with joy in my cheeks every time I rode. However, six days ago my 765RS with under 9000kms on the clock failed spectacularly on me. Without warning...

    can a efi head be put on a carb bonneville engine? Existing head is damaged beyond repair and cannot find a carb replacement for the right money but there seem to be more Efi heads out there. They have different part numbers but I cannot see a difference. Can I simply put an efi head on in place...
